In this age when there can be no losers in peace and no victors in war - we must recognize the obligation to match national strength with national restraint.
I have almost reached the regrettable conclusion that the Negro's great stumbling block in the stride toward freedom is not the White Citizens Councilor or the Ku Klux Klanner but the white moderate who is more devoted to order than to justice; who prefers a negative peace which is the absence of tension to a positive peace which is the presence of justice.
I believe that the fewer the laws in a home the better; but there is one law which should be as plainly understood as the shining of the sun is visible at noonday, and that is, implicit and instantaneous obedience from the child to the parent, not only for the peace of the home, but for the highest good of the child.
Feeding the people of the world is no longer a philanthropic project for the missionaries. There will be no peace in this world, until the worst imbalances around the world are eliminated.
Science has promised us truth... It has never promised us either peace or happiness.
Many afflictions will not cloud and obstruct peace of mind so much as one sin: therefore, if you would walk cheerfully, be most careful to walk holily. All the winds about the earth make not an earthquake, but only that within.
For as long as a time as we can see into the future, we shall be living between war and peace, between a war that cannot be fought and a peace that cannot be achieved. The great issues which divide the world cannot be decided by a war that could be won, and they cannot be settled by a treaty that can be negotiated... the power which used to deal with the division and conflicts of the past, namely, organized war, has become an impossible instrument to use.
There is but one bond of peace that is both permanent and enriching: the increasing knowledge of the world in which experiment occurs.
Peace is not a relationship of Nations. It is a condition of mind brought about by a senserity of soul. Lasting peace can come only to peaceful people.
Better a certain peace than a hoped for victory.
In time of peace we should think of war.
He who makes war his profession cannot be otherwise than vicious. War makes thieves, and peace brings them to the gallows.
To look fearlessly upon life; to accept the laws of nature, not with meek resignation, but as her sons, who dare to search and question; to have peace and confidence within our souls - these are the beliefs that make for happiness.
War appears to be as old as mankind, but peace is a modern invention.
You can't separate peace from freedom because no one can be at peace unless he has his freedom.
To be at peace with self, to find company and nourishment in self - this would be the test of the free and productive psyche.
Not merely an absence of noise, Real Silence begins when a reasonable being withdraws form the noise in order to find peace and order in his inner sanctuary. The exodus from slavery toward the possession of the Kingdom.
It takes a lot of self-love and presumption to have such esteem for one’s own opinions that to establish them one must overthrow the public peace and introduce so many inevitable evils, and such a horrible corruption of morals, as civil wars and political changes bring with them in a matter of such weight - and introduce them into one’s own country.
When after many battles past, both tir'd with blows, make peace at last, what is it, after all, the people get? Why! taxes, widows, wooden legs and debt.
Solitude is important to man. It is necessary to his achievement of peace and contentment. It is a well into which he dips for refreshment for his soul. It is his laboratory in which he distills the pure essence of worth from the raw materials of his experiences. It is his refuge when the very foundations of his life are being shaken by disastrous events.
